Well, it looks like the Packers made it through Super Bowl Media Day with no further controversy, so now the focus shifts to the game. The Pack returns to the practice field tomorrow but what kind of practice they get is certainly in question.
Because of bitter cold weather in Dallas the Packers will likely be practicing in a high school gym while the Steelers practice in an indoor facility on the TCU campus. The Packers got the short end of the stick on this deal, much like the way the whole season has gone. Just another obstacle to overcome I guess.
The Packers appeared downright jovial during the proceedings today, which I think bodes well for them as the week goes on. This certainly was not a team that was uptight or worried about the magnitude of this game, which is kind of surprising considering how little playoff experience this team has. It was good to see.
The Packers are a confidence bunch, and I think if they can withstand an early Steelers punch or two they will be just fine. I think Pittsburgh comes out looking for the early knockout.
Let’s see what happens tomorrow with the practice field issue. Talk to you then.
